Appcelerator Arrow Framework for Mobile Apps Released

Date 2015/4/8 7:44:59 | Topic: Product News

Appcelerator has unveiled Appcelerator Arrow™, a framework for building and running mobile-optimized APIs. Appcelerator Arrow, part of the Appcelerator Platform, greatly simplifies one of the largest challenges in mobile development -- connecting to and orchestrating data from a wide range of backend sources -- enabling developers to build great mobile experiences faster.
The company also announced a new on-demand model for the Appcelerator Platform. The new model means that organizations of any size, from independent developers to large enterprises, can gain instant access to all the capabilities needed to build, test, connect and measure their mobile apps.

"We feel Appcelerator Arrow could be as revolutionary for mobile backend integration as Appcelerator Titanium has been for native, cross-platform app development," said Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator. "By putting Arrow together with instant access to the Platform, our aim is to help power mobile innovation everywhere it occurs -- whether you're a leader in a Fortune 500 company, or a lone developer with a great idea."

Appcelerator Arrow: Mobilize Any Data Source In Minutes

Legacy systems of record are locked behind cumbersome, poorly documented APIs; even more recent web-based systems use pre-mobile data formats and payload sizes. Appcelerator Arrow is like a skeleton key that unlocks the many data sources needed for great apps, dramatically reducing development time while dramatically improving user experience.

Arrow provides a powerful new opinionated framework for building APIs with an elastically scalable cloud service for running them. With it, developers can quickly connect, model, transform and optimize data for any client, whether native or web.

Arrow forms the backbone of the Appcelerator Platform's MBaaS. It consists of two primary components, Builder and Cloud. Arrow Builder represents a next-generation version of the company's API Builder, enabling developers to rapidly assemble APIs, data models and data connectors via either visual wizard or programmatically. Arrow Cloud delivers an instant, elastically scalable cloud service for running APIs and analyzing their use, as well as full support for rich push notifications and ArrowDB, which provides a new schema-less data store.
